Seized bananas for Monkey World

Dorset Echo

APES at Monkey World are reaping the benefits of a successful customs seizure. The Wool attraction's residents are now tucking into 530 boxes of bananas, which were used to conceal 2.7 million smuggled cigarettes. Customs officers seized the haul from a refrigerated lorry arriving at Poole Ferry port from Cherbourg. HM Revenue & Customs spokesman Sheila Good said: "In most cases goods seized by customs officers are destroyed, so we're delighted to have been able to give the primates at Monkey World an early Christmas present." 12:32pm Tuesday 4th December 2007
